HK Diaries

Here are a few photos of my trip to Hongkong last week with one of my bestfriends. We consumed less than 100 photos for our four day trip (shocking!) and mostly our pictures consist of the food we ate and the places we saw, totally forgetting to take pictures of each other. The most photos we've taken are our silly pictures at Madame Tussauds which is too embarrassing to post here. We had so much fun food tripping - I think we had xiao long bao and milk tea everyday and we lusted over all the designer items in Hongkong! If only I had all the money in the world...

Xiao Long Bao less one piece because my bestfriend was too excited she ate one before I even had a chance to take a picture. LOL

That's about it. Happy Wednesday!

We basically spent our long weekend by watching a movie on Sunday and then taking turns to watch our little munchkin/nephew who is now one month old so his parents could finally have a much needed break. Plus, we also seem to have eaten a lot as well i.e. bonchon chicken, buffalo wings, steak, baked potato with bacon and cheese and oatmeal cookies - in no particular order. I wonder if the rainy weather is scientifically proven to make you hungry because I seem to gain weight when its raining. 

Btw, we also finally had the time to take photos/videos so we can finally update our blog. And we finally went to Happy Lemon Rockwell to see what the fuss was all about. I think I have developed a love for milk tea that I'm thinking of concocting one at home, after all it's just milk + tea right??? I'll google on that later. Pictures of my trip to be posted soon. 

I hope everyone enjoyed their long weekend, we definitely did! :)

Errand Day

I had a few errands to do before my trip on Monday and since it's only me and my sister Pat at home we decided to go to Greenbelt so I can pay my bills (before I spend all my money!) and have dinner as well.

For some weird reason, I'm really worried about what i've packed. I am an EXTREME over packer and it's the first time I've packed "light." Oh well. I'm actually all packed 2 days before any trip so I have time to know if there's something missing or anything else I need before the trip (so OC, I know). I also finally had the roots of my hair bleached and dyed blonde once again (much to the dismay of our dad), had my nails done, bought toiletries etc and finished all my pending work. I'm not bringing a laptop so I'll be in the "down low" for awhile. Hongkong here I come! :)

P.S. I changed our header and layout! On the upcoming holiday we're planning to change our icons/gadgets as well. :)

Out and about

Rare moment that I actually have my picture taken in public. Haha! It's the shoes again. I wore it to the mall to know how many hours I can handle walking around with it (Am I the only one who does this?) Apparently, not that much. Oh, and I was having a bad hair day too, just when I needed to get my picture taken for my license. But nothing can really dampen my mood because I'm going to Hongkong with my bestfriend on Monday!!! Yaaaaaay!!!

Oh and can you tell I don't have my braces anymore? After 4 years of awkward smiles, my teeth are finally... there. I mean, it's so nice to finally see them in all their glory that I keep smiling to everyone I see which I realized later on is incredibly creepy.

Something short and sweet for work. Photos taken by my mom who while taking my pictures asked me, "May nagbabasa naman ng blog nyong yan?" and I'm like, "Meron naman kahit konti!" Thanks for the vote of confidence Ma! Hahaha! No really, I love my mom because she's frank like that. And even if she finds it incredulous to constantly take pictures of my outfit she's still willing to take my photos. Love you mommykins.

Just dropping by to give random itouch photos at your service. Lomo apps are so addictive! A definite must try - ifacefat, it's hilarious! Gotta run, I got new prescription glasses which I have to pick up. Will you believe my eyesight got worse after a year? Our grandfather is 77 years old and still has 20/20 vision. SO unfair.

Fate

I bought these shoes at the Zara sale. I've loved these shoes the moment I laid eyes on it way back last March but when I finally decided to buy it at around April it wasn't available anymore. I even downloaded it's picture and showed it to the sales people at Zara but they said it was out of stock. So, it's kind of like fate when I saw it on sale and I knew in my heart and soul I just had to get it. Even if it's really not my size. And it's kind of hard to walk on. But it's still soooooo pretty.

Oh, and say hi to my cow slippers. :)

Ok. I feel like i'm so witty with the title right now. I actually have a series of photos looking like the third picture where half of my head can't be seen. Can you just hear Hermione's little voice asking "Nearly headless? How can you be nearly headless?" (If you're not a potter-addict, it's from the first HP movie) LOL Since my pictures turned out to be an epic fail, I finally decided to just sit down on the bed and have my pictures taken there. It's so hard when you're only using self-timer. Oh, and I resurrected my old booties from its shoe slumber since I needed something that won't get my feet wet. I am so loving this rainy weather. :)
